Take a lesson from major builders like pulte and toll brothers and from my own experiences. People notice bad stuff, like cracked cement, wrinkled carpet, bad paint jobs, ect. ect.

i don't think you need to go with top of the line windows, just some functional air tight ones should do fine. Good luck selling your house.

It depends if you are selling a higher end home or not. Most buyers don't really care who made the windows, as long as they suit the style of the home and are energy efficient.

You maybe won't be able to increase the price much. The increase is in the value it adds. If the homes you are competing against have upgraded window, all else equal, and you don't the other homes will probably sell quicker. If yours has the upgrades you should sell quicker.

Actually they can help sell your home faster or get closer to the original list price if they are promoted as being top quality windows in the home. It is a good marketing ploy to be used by the listing agent.
